The Museum of East Anglian Life, soon to be the UK’s only Food Museum is going on the road! From April to June 2022, we are touring our exhibition ‘Food Stories’ to communities across East Anglia. We’ll be launching the tour on Thursday 21st April starting in the museum’s medieval barn.
‘Food Stories’ celebrates East Anglian recipes, cooking, farming techniques and dialect words that have been passed down through generations. The centrepiece of the exhibition will be a farm kitchen table featuring local recipes, photos, sound recordings and objects from our collection. With our partners, the University of Leeds, we will be able to share historic sound recordings from the region of people talking about their food and farming memories. Visitors will also be able to take part in the University of Leeds’ cutting edge dialect research by contributing their own dialect words. We also encourage visitors to share their favourite or family recipes, bringing along a copy to pin up to our growing display.
